Snoopy, like lagging behind the music, the band style doesn't match the song style? I dunno. I just like da music! Gripping, and full of emotion! Ah, I love a song with a strong emotional message, whatever that message may be... but...I really don't know what you mean. I'll try to answer, if I can figure it out... helps me to get it? I's slow...
I mean the look of the dudes suggests to me that I'm going to have my head gripped firmly and smashed against a wall repeatedly. Instead I hear "normal" rock.
Not a criticism, like I said, just an observation...Have they "mellowed"?
